Spiritual Exploration (Formally RE)

We offer a diverse program for school-aged children K-6 during the school year. Nursery care for pre-K children is provided in the parlors throughout the year by Valerie.

“My child is enjoying her time in class on Sundays.  I feel it so vital in the world we live in today to have our children be connected to such a loving church community. Thank you for revitalizing these classes and enriching our children with such wonderful studies.” A parent
